The death of our loved one, Marty James Trahan closes a chapter in our lives. The significance of his life may be hard to describe; but we believe that Psalm 23 summarizes it best.

Psalm 23: "The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and staff protect and comfort me. Surely, your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever."

As our Dad took his last breath on Monday May 16th, 2022, he was surrounded in prayers and flooded with love by his closest family and friends.

Marty was born on October 2, 1963, raised on Avery Island, and a 1981 graduate of New Iberia Senior High. In 1988, he married the love of his life, Lisa, and from their marriage, two beautiful twin girls, Lauren and Lindsey were born. He worked many years with the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office, his family business (Teche Office Supply), and retired from Office Mart as a salesman. Marty was a passionate member of the Iberia Parish Council and was highly dedicated to the service of others. He was a faithful member of Highland Baptist Church for many years.

Marty was very devoted to his wife, children, and grandchildren along with his family. He loved to spend his free time outdoors. Fishing, hunting, camping, and playing cards were also a few of his favorite pastimes.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Ted and Linda Bonin; paternal grandparents, Luke and Adez Trahan; in-laws, Herman and Sue Dore; and two brothers-in-law, Donald J. Dore, and Craig A. Dore.
